Slain OFW Jullebee Ranara gets SSS benefits

The family of slain Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW), Jullebee Ranara, received her benefits from the Social Security System (SSS) in a simple ceremony held at its main office.

The claims were given by President and CEO Rolando Ledesma Macasaet who handed over proceeds of benefit claims to Norlynda Cabiles, mother and SSS beneficiary of Ranara who received more than P100,000 comprising of SSS Death and Funeral benefits, and financial assistance from SSS officials and employees.

“Considering the sacrifices being made by our OFWs by working in a foreign country and being away from their families for a long period of time, it is very important that they have an active SSS membership which will help them and their families in times of contingencies,” Macasaet said.

Macasaet also expressed his sincerest condolences to the family of Ranara and reiterated his continuous support and efforts towards the social security protection of OFWs. He also offered a job opportunity to Ranara’s sibling within the SSS.

Cabiles, on the other hand, thanked the SSS for the benefits she received, attributed to the hard work of her daughter, and additional financial support.

The SSS is a state-run social insurance institution that extends social security protection to Filipino workers in the private and informal sectors. Under the Social Security Law, it provides seven benefit programs namely, Sickness, Maternity, Unemployment, Retirement, Disability, Death, and Funeral, as well as various loan privileges.
